In Loving Memory of
JAMES P.G. CASTANEDA (TACO)

On 16 November 2009 James left us and went with the Lord. You are gone but not forgotten. Not a day goes by that we do not think about you. James was a loving son, brother, friend and father; he was always available to listen when someone just wanted to talk. His two sons, Kaeo and Kaimi, were the center of his life. He spent countless hours working with them on homework, sports and just enjoying the honor of being their “dad”. We miss James very much and he is in our thoughts and prayers everyday. The world lost the most unselfish person when James left to be with the Lord and heaven gained a special angel. The Lord forgives all who accept him into their hearts and lives. James is truly missed in our lives, but we know he is at peace. We love you and miss you. Your Mom and Joe.

Kaeo and Kaimi: You are in our hearts forever and we miss the both of you dearly. We hope to see or hear from you one day. Love and God Bless, Grandma Lupe and Papa Joe. Please visit Face book at “In loving Memory of James P.G. Castaneda” to view pictures, read comments and write your own comments about the special times you shared with James.
